Great area for your dog!
Jun 2019 • Couples
We visited here today fully expecting to go to the "small dog" area. Unfortunately this area is not very well kept and the water looked terrible. Luckily they have a large dog area that is incredible. There were quite a few people and dogs there but because of the large area it never felt crowded. I would definitely recommend that you visit this area if you dog enjoys swimming. Be sure to bring a ball along for them to retrieve. This would have been a five star area except for the small dog area.

Plenty of room for your dog to run and/or swim
Jun 2018 • Family
A wonderful dog park within easy reach from anywhere in town. The park, lets your dog run free, fetch a ball or just socialize with other dogs. In other words, where a dog can be a dog. There is a lot of room all fenced in from the outside and neither we or our dog have never been bothered by aggressive dogs.

My Favorite Dog Park, Access to the Trail
Feb 2019 • Friends
I have spent many happy days at the Twin Lakes Recreation Area! The dog park is deluxe. There is a large lake with a trail around it linking to the MKT trail, half of which is enclosed for a dedicated dog park. This is a large off leash area! There are large shade trees, picnic tables, lake frontage for dog swimming, several field areas for running/play, and a wooded area with a trail.

A second, smaller lake is enclosed for dogs that are 18 inches or smaller. A third fenced area has no lake and is used as a winter-safe dog park, seasonally.

The recreation area has a large pavilion that can be reserved for big groups, with grills and restrooms.

One of the best features of this park is a water park for families of young children with multiple splash areas, sprinklers, and swimming areas.

We are fortunate to have so many well developed and maintained recreation areas in our city. Twin Lakes is one of the best examples!

Li'l Mates Cove
Jul 2018 • Family
Our grandchildren loved Li'l Mates Cove. I wondered if it would be too young for a nine year old granddaughter, and she enjoyed it, too. We spent hours there and the kids we're happy to stay. The kids loved the shallow water. I loved that it was easy to keep an eye on them, and there were several lifeguards.

The park as trails, a nice lake and large areas for dogs to play unleashed. There is a pool with lifeguard, a pavilion and a fishing dock. The trails have benches in scenic areas to enjoy the view.

Great dog park. There are two separate areas, one for small dogs and one for large dogs. Overall the best place for pups.

This was a nice surprise on our stop in Columbia. Lots of water with easy access for the dogs, so beware, if your dogs like water, they can get wet.
